How to install the update and force-activate new features

The Windows 11 Moment 5 update has been available for a few days, and it doesn't include all the latest features by default. However, you can force its activation without waiting for it to be published by Microsoft.

Windows 11 Moment 5 update has been officially available for a few days for eligible PC users. However, this new version is, at the moment, only available as an optional update.

Because as with every update to its operating system, Microsoft moves forward in waves. When the update finally becomes stable, Microsoft will initially only offer it to users who explicitly request it. To get it before anyone else, it's actually necessary to check an option in your Windows 11 update settings to indicate that you want to be served first. Microsoft will then begin distributing its update to a broader target, before fully opening the door to offering it to everyone through a monthly update, which should arrive here on April 9.

Right now, even if you're able to install the update on your device, there's no indication that you'll benefit from all the new features announced by Microsoft. And for good reason, if some new features are subject to hardware configuration, Microsoft has a habit of gradually teasing out new features in its update. If you are one of the first users to install this optional update (KB5034848), there is a good chance that you will not yet have access to all features.

However, do not panic, even if they are not visible on your device, the new features are there, but not activated. It is also very easy to force activation manually.
